Does physical therapy hurt?
In general PT is not painful and usually the more skillful the therapist the less pain. This is not to say that pain and discomfort are not ever experienced. There are those situations with restricted motion and scar tissue adhesions where some discomfort is experienced. The rule of thumb is to communicate well with your therapist so they can adjust the treatment to fit your tolerance.
